unrelated donor search update

I spoke to Sinda this morning. At the moment, there's a 8/10 match. This the final result of the second round of HLA testing for this individual. I don't know, however, any of the specifics, such as gender, ethnicity, age, about this potential donor. The blood results of two other potential donors are expected back by late May or early June. Based upon the preliminary information that's available, they both seem to be 5/6 match. Then, there's a potential 6/6 match but this person will not be available for testing until June.

I also called Dr. Castro-Malaspina's office. I left a message with his secretary, Margaret, asking her to inform him of my remission and to tell him that he should expect a call from Dr. Rosenbaum about my status
